Notes:
Renette and Zavatarelli list this as an informal series of games, one of four sets of games played between these two players in the second week of August 1859. Dubois, in La Rivista degli Scacchi (1859, p.167), gives a total score of the four sets of +27-13 for Anderssen and several draws; the Schachzeitung of Sep. 1859 (p.286) gives +27-13=8 for Anderssen. Feenstra Kuiper, Di Felice and Spinrad also give this +27-13=8 for Anderssen for the total of the four sets, matching the total given by Renette and Zavatarelli. Zavatarelli, in the Quarterly for Chess History, gives +7-10=5 for Andersson, instead of Suhle. The Schachzeitung of Jan. 1861 (p.32) confirms that this series of offhand games had result +10-7=5 for Anderssen.
